This beautifully produced, full-color book grew out of sessions on the creative and expressive art of nursing at The Honor Society of Nursing Sigma Theta Tau Internationals biennial conventions in 1999 and 2001. The artwork, produced by more than fifty thoughtful, introspective, and caring nurse-artists, serves as shining examples of nursings ongoing and intense engagement in the holistic and humanistic enterprise to create art in a variety of forms, including poems, short stories, essays, photographs, quilting, needlework, drawings, and paintings. The book provides a rare glimpse into nurses interiority, while exploring and advancing definitions of art in nursing.
